School Closure Information Provided to Parents and Employees

School Closure Information Provided to Parents and Employees

The following is a reminder about the Board’s school closure procedure for students and employees.

If schools are closed due to snow, or any other weather-related problems, announcements will be made on local radio stations (WOLF 106.9 FM,WAVE 102.3 FM, and 91.7 COAST FM) by 7 a.m., or earlier, on the day of the closure. Please do not call the radio station – tune in and listen for the announcements, which will be made on a regular basis.

In addition, the district will post the information on the district’s website, Twitter, Facebook and mobile app. Families may also receive a message through the School Messenger notification system via phone, email or text. Please keep in mind, however, that there may be situations where this is not always possible, for example, power outages or technical problems. The most reliable method is to listen to the local radio stations.


· Listen to the radio stations for announcements of school closures, as described above and on the mobile app.

RENTALS – All rental agreements will be cancelled on the day of a school closure.

EXTRACURRICULAR ACTIVITIES – In the event of a school closure day, all school activities will also be cancelled (eg. School sporting events/excursions, PAC meetings etc.)
